I have 3,300 hours on my HC3800, and was wondering if I should put my spare bulb in.


When you changed yours at 4000 hours, was there a huge brightness jump?


Thanks.

Vacuuming vents

When vacuuming the vents from the outside, is it best to have projector on or off? Is a normal vacuum with a hose attachment too powerful? Thanks.

I got lucky and bought the HD598 on Black Friday for $95(Amazon). From what I've read, the original and Special Edition are exactly the same, except for the color.
